What Is Hair Restoration, And What
Techniques Are Offered At Uda?

Hair restoration is the process of stopping
hair loss and attempting to re-grow hair to restore one’s natural hairline.
Hair restoration generally involves medications, procedures, or

UDA offers the full spectrum of treatments
available including medical therapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections,
laser treatments, low level light therapy (LLLT), and hair

Can You Tell Me About Hair

Hair transplantation moves hairs from an area
where the patient has good hair density to an area with lower hair density.
The goal is to increase the density of hair in the recipient site without any
noticeable change in the appearance of the donor site. At UDA, we use the
follicular unit extraction (FUE) method of hair transplantation using the
SmartGraft device. This allows us to move hairs without leaving any
appreciable scarring in the donor area. The older method of follicular unit
transplantation (FUT) leaves a large linear scar on the

Are The Results Permanent?

Yes, but it’s not that simple. The hairs that
are transplanted will be there permanently, but without any additional
treatments (such as medical therapy) the surrounding hair can continue to
thin. That’s why it’s really important to see a hair loss expert for the
best, most natural results.

What is the recovery like after a hair
transplant procedure?

Unlike prior techniques, SmartGraft’s FUE
method does not use scalpels or sutures, so recovery is much easier. You need
about a week of down time after the procedure, and then you can go back to
all your normal activities. There is little to no pain during or after the
procedure, and your scalp will looks totally normal by the end of that first

Do you have to shave your head for the
SmartGraft procedure?

No. For males, the hair can be cut into a
short fade in the donor area and the hair can be left at normal length in the
recipient area. For females, a thin strip on the back of the head can be
shaved while leaving the rest of the hair at normal length. This way, the
donor site can be completely hidden with the rest of the

Does The Hair Transplant Look Like ‘Hair
Plugs’ When It Is Healed?

No. Older methods of hair transplantation
involved movement of multiple hair follicles all at once. This made the
transplanted hair look artificial and unnatural. The process has been refined
greatly, and now only individual hair follicles are moved. Once everything is
healed, it has a completely natural look. 

What Areas Can Be Treated By Hair

We can transplant hairs to increase density
on the scalp, eyebrows, and even beard area.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Hair

Anyone who suffers from androgenetic alopecia
(what is commonly referred to as male pattern and female pattern hair loss).
There are considerations that can affect the quality of results of a hair transplantation
procedure, but anyone who is unhappy with their hair loss could benefit
greatly from a consultation with us.

Restoring lost hair can bring some people
life-changing benefits in confidence, and emotional well-being, and we are
excited to offer this service at United
Dermatology Associates!

forehead lines, crow’s feet, lip lines and neck lines. These quick and
